How to Reach Old City Hall

It is important to know how to reach visit Old City Hall for all tourists looking forward to a trip to this monument. The Old City Hall of Colombo is an important place in Ceylonese culture and history and a very frequently visited tourist spot.  

The easiest way is definitely to take E03 Highway and follow it straight past Ragama and Peliyagoda to reach the monument. But this route has tolls along its course. A faster route might be to take E03 Highway and then peel off to Canal Road and follow it straight to the destination. This is how to reach visit Old City Hall by road from the nearest airport. Popular traveling options include tuk-tuk rides and cabs.

A similar approach to how to reach visit Old City Hall from Colombo Harbor, which is the closest harbor to town is applicable. The best route is to take AC6 Highway, but its use is restricted. A smarter route might be to take Colombo Port Main Road to AC20 and then move onto Darley Road via AC6. This thirty-minute journey (by car) is roughly eight and a half kilometers away from Colombo Harbor.  

Another solution is to take a train to Fort Railway station and then take a cab. The common routes include AC6, A2, and A4 Highways. They all take the same time to reach. The Tuk-tuk rides are particularly famous here.

      We have been to srilanka for 5 days (may 3rd to 7th) and the trip was awsome and excellent. Shanil and Janaka were very friendly and took care of us. Over all trip to srilanka was very safe and incrideble. Must visist country atleast once in life time. I recommend my friends and family to visist srilanka of course through Travco.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      Visited Sri Lanka with Travco adventures through Travel Triangle. Was a bit apprehensive about the sensitive situation in Colombo. But Mr. Shanil from Travco rest assured me of our safety. He did good arrangements for us. The vehicle and the driver were very good. The hotels provided were good except for The Grand Concord, Colombo. The executive from Travel triangle was calling multiple times till the booking was done. But sorry to say, once they received their payment, nobody bothered to answer our calls or queries. Had read about previous reviews of travel triangle on the net and I share the same views. Once they get their payment.. They don't wish to know you. Wonderful Sri Lanka. Nuwara Elliya was breathtakingly beautiful. The beach at Bentota was fabulous. The staff of all the hotels were very cordial and welcoming.

      Service of agent is really above the mark and helpful to each and every person in our 42 member group. TT as mediator is not helpful or even concerned about it's customer. While it's clearly written and double clarified about no cancellation before 28 days of tour, it's cost me 160$ for 2 people out of 44 people. Water rafting at Kithulgala Water Sports at Bentota and Belly's Casino in Colombo .

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      Very good organisation by the travel agent of Boom Lanka. Very nice and polite and helpful and attending to our wishes and needs. Just one day the schedule was not able to do because it was too full and we couldnt do all things that were mentioned. But we figured that by looking at the plan and canceled some unnecessary points, like a long hike. All in all it was very good, sometime you have too look in the internet weather "vising" means a hike or you just drive there and see it easily. But that is maybe also owed to the culteral discrepance and understanding.

      Everything that arranged by Travel Triangle was up to the mark. The chauffeur was really nice and friendly and was there for us through the entire journey and also the agent ( Stuti) was also really supportive and helpful and made everything real easy for us. Had a great experience!

      Everything was excellent except our stay in Magampura Eco Village. Due to the blasts and curfew we were the only guests there. Service was pathetic and room AC was not cooling. Overall a very memorable trip

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      Had a wonderful time in Srilanka. Thanks to Chathura for planning our itinerary . Apart from Oak ray tea Bush hotel, rest was superb. Special mention to our Chauffeur Mr Nandana, he took care of us very well. Highly recommended these guys . My trip started with tragic bomb blasts in colombo for which our prayers are with people of Srilanka. At this tough time it was ensured from the tropical ceylon team and especially our chauffeur Mr Nandana that we are safe , coordinating with authorities and ensuring we donot enter or go towards affected areas. People of Srilanka are very friendly and always ensure that they help to their best of abilities.
